Report: Rams’ Inglewood site receives more votes than Carson
The St. Louis Rams’ plan for a stadium in Inglewood, Calif. reportedly received more votes than a joint-Chargers and Raiders venture in Carson at the NFL owners meetings in Houston on Tuesday.
Both Los Angeles Times reporter Sam Farmer and Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole shared the news:
First round of votes completed. Rams/TBD in Inglewood gets more votes than Raiders/Chargers in Carson. Nobody at required 24 yet.

There are currently two competing proposals for teams to move to Los Angeles. One is the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers sharing a stadium in Carson. The other is the Rams and a to-be-determined team playing in Inglewood at a site owned by Rams owner Stan Kroenke. The site is at the former home of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kings.
The results of the vote are somewhat of a surprise. Earlier information said that the NFL’s LA committee voted 5-1 supporting the Raiders-Chargers project in Carson. Neither project has the support of 24 owners yet, which is required for approval.
